About This Listing
Welcome to the House of Lady Cindy:
This fabulous 3-bedroom apartment is nestled across from St. Nicholas Park with views of Central Park, the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine and the Empire State Building. This apartment has amazing NYC skyline views in all of its rooms. The sun set view from each room is simply spectacular and I highly suggest a stay just for this experience. The building has 24hour , seven days a week front desk security, elevated building so no need to climb stairs. This open floor Kitchen design is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances that are all brand new (dish washer, stove, refrigerator, microwave and on site washers/dryers). The cabinets are made of cheery wood and it features stainless steel handles with tons of counter space for preparing both large and small meals for you and your loved ones. All other customary appliances and dish ware is supplied.
Master bedroom features a queen bed carefully crafted of mahogany and cheery primavera veneers for a beautiful appearance and a strong look that command its space, and leads the guests to beautiful large windows that opens the room to the incredible views of the Manhattan Skyline. The Queen Mattress is detailed with a plush setting and all bedding used is of luxury quality. The guest will drift asleep knowing that they are being hosted with the utter best.
The two junior bedrooms features: one full bed carefully crafted of warm cherry veneers and the other full bed is carefully crafted of black wrought iron. In both rooms, the guest is led to large windows that opens the room to incredible views of the Manhattan Skyline. Both Full Mattresses are detailed with plush setting and all bedding used is of luxury quality. The guest will drift asleep knowing that they are being hosted with the best quality. All beds are bed bug protected.

Cin was responsive and helpful throughout the entire time. She even drop off 2 of my friend with her car. And in New York, its a great hospitality. Where at least you should spent more than $25 for cab.
The interior of the apartment is nice, clean and the kitchen well equipped.
The neighborhood is okay for us. No body bother us so far. It's New York after all.

Is the glass half empty or half full? Cin’s apartment was as advertised – spacious, comfortable, relatively clean, and accessible to transportation, etc. And Cin was friendly. But there were problems. First, Cin waited until I was on my way to the apartment to inform me that the building was ‘old’… An understatement – it is old, dirty, and the hallway smelled like urine. Also, she went through great lengths to ensure that we spoke to no one in the building, especially security. She seemed overly concerned that we would let slip that we were Airbnb renters and implied that there are legal issues with her renting the apartment through Airbnb. The upshot is though we were comfortable in the apartment; we did not feel very welcomed or secure in the building. Sleeping was also an issue. There was a loud, scratching noise in the wall between the two back bedrooms; we assumed it was a mouse. I reported it to Cin and she was concerned. Her solution was to release us from our lease, but we were 4 women in town for business with limited time to deal with housing issues. I asked her to send an exterminator to deal with the problem, but she did not. I will return to NYC, but I will rent this apartment again.
I am truly sorry your experience was not fully positive. On several occasions, we offered a full refund but you declined, stating you "could not find something as affordable and nice in Manhattan”, so hopefully that means your stay was successful overall. I only asked that you not disclose the agreement and did not mean to imply not to speak to anyone, as the people in the building and neighborhood are friendly, and I've never had any security issues here.
I love hosting through Airbnb and have been doing it for over 5 years. I strive to provide an amazing experience for my clients, as shown by my overall satisfaction rate (which exceeds 4.5 stars) and the many positive reviews I've gotten:
1) We are family with 3 children from Switzerland and we rented the whole apartment for 10 days. We had a absolutely great time!!!!
Everything was perfect, Cindy is a very nice and helpful person.
We liked the amazing view, the neighbourhood and the close location to the subway station. The apartment is very clean and comfortable.
I wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you very much.,
2) This place was conveniently located 2 blocks from a subway station which can get you wherever you need to go. The place is very nice with plenty of beds and is well furnished. Cin was extremely accommodating and helpful, I hope that every host is as hospitable as she was.
I hope you'll visit NYC soon, and reconsider staying in one of my apartments.
Cin was super responsive and helpful throughout the entire time. The apartment is as described and has a great view. The building is relatively unattractive. You may want to check it out on Streetview to get an idea. But again, despite the facade of the house, the interior of the apartment is nice. The neighborhood is ok and in the process of gentrification. Cin is very concerned about neighbors finding out that she is renting out her place and therefore does not want you to interact too much with neighbors. I guess this is normal since AirBnB is under a lot of pressure in New York. However, it is an unpleasant feeling if you stay at a place where you have to worry about what you say to neighbors. Other than that, the apartment was clean and the kitchen big and well equipped. The metro is very close.
